Jesus was on the way to Jericho and as usual there was a crowd following Him. Two blind men were sitting beside the road and when they heard Jesus was passing, they called out to Him, “Lord have mercy on us.” Jesus heard them and stopped and asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?” “We want to see,” they answered. And Jesus, in pity, touched their eyes and their eyes were opened and they could see.
When I read that story last week, it seemed that the question Jesus asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?” became a question He was asking me. “What do you want me to do for you?”
Last week, when I was facing a problem I couldn’t fix or met a challenge too big for me – Jesus would ask me, “What do you want me to do for you?” I would stop what I was doing and tell Him what I wanted Him to do. And He would provide a solution.
Dorothy emailed me one morning and said they were leaving for Bolivia with a ministry team the next day, but the ticket for one member of the team had gone missing. Jesus’ question came to my mind and in a reply to her I wrote a prayer. “Jesus, we want you to find the ticket.” Thirty minutes later, Dorothy emailed and said the ticket was found.
Today and every day, Jesus is saying to you, “What do you want me to do for you?” What will your answer be?
Jesus, thank you for caring about our needs and wants. Thank you, for asking us what you can do for us. Thank you for solving our problems. Amen.
